Hi I agreed to a hysterectomy nearly 4 weeks ago now I've heard nothing not a letter or anything I've rang my gyno secretary around 4 times left a couple of messages but she's not rang back ,I just want a rough idea of a date even if it's next year ,I work for myself and Xmas is my busiest time and I'm currently only taking orders a couple of weeks in advance as not sure how it works ,I have heard you have to sign a form to even go on waiting list and I've not signed anything ,anyone who has had the operation could you tell me how it worked for you from start to finish ,many thanks x

    Hi sue

    From Gp refereal in December 2014 to scan in January 2015. Sent to Dr in Gyno February I had two appointments after that first date in February has unsure to proceed with hysterectomy. March 2015 signed my consent form,was told could be 18 week wait from signing of consent form . I was after 8/9 weeks ringing to find where I was on the waiting list. No joy with Secretary has she was non the wiser either. But end of june a cancellation came and I'm now 7weeks post opp. Feeling better for taking the plunge, but consent forms need to be signed. Have you seen your Gyno usually if agreed with gyno for hysterectomy you sign papers there with gyno has both signatures needed. And you can have copy of papers signed if they Don,t offer n you want one I'm sure they will let u have a copy.

    Keep ringing first thing in morning I found was better to get hold of Secretary.
